Another Bendigo Sheep and Wool Show is over. I had a lovely time this year and only spent a fraction of what I did last year and I still had a wonderful time. Granted, I didn’t go with a shopping list, I didn’t need one, because well, this little squirrel has all the acorns she needs and then some.
I was very happy to be wearing my newly acquired gumboots, the rain and slooshy mud did not worry me at all. I did feel the crowd numbers were down, I don’t know if it was the weather or economic times that have kept people away.
My usual favourite stand-holders were there. It’s kind of nice to return to the show year after year and have a fair idea where the stores are situated. It was very enjoyable to browse and shop and enable with friends.
Here a few treasures I found: Stranded in Oz sock yarn, a ‘yarnie’ by Spindle Woody, a Turkish spindle, some Softrope fluff and a spindle bag from Spun Out. I tried out the spindle as soon as I got back to my room, my goodness how easy is a Turkish Spindle to spin with? Why didn’t anyone tell me? It spins itself!
Did you enjoy Bendigo this year?
